2017 The Gifting Universe


“We most fully realize our own humanity when we receive the energies of the world as a gift and, in processing them, release them back into the world as a gift.  Indeed, each breath we take in brings a gift of oxygen from the plant life of the world, and each exhalation carries in return, a gift of carbon dioxide.  All forms of thanksgiving – whether prayer, song or ritual – celebrate the exchange of gifts, and acknowledge it in all the phenomena of the world.”

– Philip Shepherd,  New Self, New World

About this Calendar 

“I love your calendars and so do my children and grandchildren.” – Nancy A.

“Whenever I look at your calendar I worship.” – Sandra Boston

The Gifting Universe Calendar combines contemporary science with inspired passion. It is the heartwork of Peter Adair, with graphic design by Julia Eva Bacon. The calendar was conceived, written, designed and printed in Vermont. Twelve stunning images illustrate Adair’s evocative prose, as the story unfolds one month at a time. 12” x 12” glossy format opening to 12” x 24”.
